Source: Russian Orthodox Podcast

Sunday, 11 December 2016

This podcast is very special to us personally, as we sit down to chat with our childhood friend, now priest – Father Alexander Paramonov, newly appointed priest to the fledgling church at Tweed Heads, on the Gold Coast in Australia. We ask him about the beginnings of this Orthodox parish, his personal journey to the priesthood, some challenges facing the clergy today, and the upcoming Syezd (Youth Conference) being hosted by the Gold Coast community at the end of December 2016.
